    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  3. Front End Vibration/Shudder While Under Load - Axle?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello! I have a 2007 Passat Wagon (2.0T, A/T). When we bought it, it had a bad front right wheel bearing, and there was this slight vibration/wiggle/shudder in the front end. I thought maybe the wheel bearing was that bad and was causing it. Replaced the bearing, noise is gone, shudder still...
